8:00 am
the idleness of not having enough to do. are the basics keeping them in step. so, i'd like to know what other leadership programs are going to be available to these young kids. we heard about the sport things. what about the things coming out of silicon valley, working with yahoo or google that gives mentor ships. i haven't heard anything with the media and i have heard of the arts doing something with
8:01 am
the idleness. >> what partnerships with the private sector. >> at the bay view safe haven, we have a project with pixar. that's going on through this summer as well. we also have another project with another participant in my program, will be taking a flight to the colorado film festival where he one a prize for a film he did about his brother in hunter's point. i will be running a right's of
8:02 am
passage at joe lee. so our number, 4 one 5. 824-4098. i can give you a whole slew of activities. >> i just wanted to say, we had been in a conversation with maya and we are planning with a pilot program to develop an 8-week program where mondays would be career explorations. they are going to visit art
8:03 am
musicians and bank of america and the career paths they have chosen and then there are discussions about attitude and hygiene. how do you present yourself so people want to engage with you. we are trying to work with the mayor's office and d.c. yn. >> there are a couple of youth empowerments. and the whole goal of that fund, which john may know about the details is to empower the people to be the victors of their destiny. it's a way to let youth identify their dreams and be the leaders in terms of
8:04 am
allocations. they dole out grants. so the youth empowerment fund is an exciting way in come san francisco is engaging its young people. we have one of the few youth commissions. they work on the variety of youth issues. the ymc has launched big brothers and big sisters. nick cannon has an entire campaign of stop hating. kind of embedded in citiess and communities around california. in terms of digital media, i think that's a very important
8:05 am
part. we have a lot of digital lead companies. you have new america media. youth outlook. you've not bay cat and bay vac. each of those are engaged with probationers. so i think that people recognize the value of digital media. we have to connect and explore those job opportunities directing our young people. we are doing that. we are around in digital media work. >> i meant to say bay cat. it's actually a digital media company. we work with the crn and
8:06 am
currently trying to pull things together with bay cat. it's a good place in terms of getting our youth in that. >> i would like to engage the private sector to push the limits on the use of technology to keep in touch with our kids. i would love to put a cell phone in the hands of everybody in the probation. and that we would have the kids on hand. they don't make a move without letting everybody know what they are doing. what they are. what they are thinking what's going to happen next.
8:07 am
a lot of kids get involved for one beef. we should look for our partners in the telecommunications. disposable phones. so, i'd like to explore to that >> will you commit to that? >> sure. i already have a conversation 2 years ago with someone, i won't mention the name of the carior. it was almost like i was talking from mars. i will continue to pursue this. >> next question.
8:08 am
>>[inaudible]. >> they are talking to media. all of these things are connected to the finance of our society. so we need to really get into the mentor and leadership dynamics with a bank. somebody needs to find out really what's working in our society. and i think this is where these kids are really left out. they feel they are not apart of the inner workings of our society and how it really connected our beliefs and how important they are not scheme of things. it's not just about basketball
8:09 am
and football. they need to get with the finances of what goes on here in this society. >> thank you. next question >> yes. i had a quick comment. i wanted to follow up on communities that are outside of the regular realm of crn. we need and crn over there. i wanted to say within the last couple of youths. we have all kinds of youth cultures and we have a huge latino population. most of those kids are young. we have been having our convenes meetings. all of us agree.
8:10 am
none of us have the structure. we need to have someone get involved with job opportunity. we need that in the t l. >> that's my comment. >> i don't know. people could respond to that. >> i have actually talked about kyle peterson to have a discussion. i agree. the need is out there. one of the things, with the crn structure. there has to be and agency that are going to have to step in. that was one the barriors.
8:11 am
it wasn't mentioned before. with all of the other different crn's. there is an existing relationship that has transsended generations. i think the tl hasn't been a specific culture or ethnicity. i don't think the community ties are as long. but the conversation had sparked up and by all means, i am on board to see what can be a development. additionally, that's what i wanted to say. >> john. can you commit to that? this is a very good of example of where we can stop the infection. right? we know it's there.
8:12 am
so let's stop it before it becomes a disease. can you commit, you have worked with people. this is something that has been raised. >> i am committed to continuing the conversations >> you had another question. >> we would love to hear commitment from other folks. just to put it out there. we are talks about immigrants. a lot of people we are working with are undocumented. people do not trust the police. especially our young folks. we had a person beat up by the police. we are hoping in the future. the police department can think
8:13 am
of how the immigration rates. it's not proimmigrant. especially undocumented youth are afraid for their safety and aren't coming forward. >> i would like to address some of the issues on our undocumented youth in san francisco. it's important that we protect all people regardless of their immigration status. the police and rates that have happend and been on going. the mayor has been in discussions minimizing that in san francisco. we are not notified. the police department has no information about the raids. they are not working with local police. we are trying to work with the
8:14 am
aftermath to provide services to families who are impacted by the raids. we provide service for the undocumented youth. >> can i just piggyback on that. just in terms of leveraging resources. the city has maya has already pointed out funds a lot of programs. i would say try to find out who's being funded ask them to come over. try to figure out where those dollars for going.
8:15 am
>>[inaudible]. >> right. let's connect afterwards. i maybe able to give you some follow up resources. >> the city is working between the various agencys to identify where there's individuals are. >> good morning. i am qwanza. i am a community member and resident of san francisco. we talk about community response networks. we talk about all of the people working together. i think about in the good book about our humbling ourselves. so when i think about that, i am also a man of god.
8:16 am
i have to ask this about where is the faith communities in these talks? in these discussions. are there any examples of the faith communities? >> i want to keep it real. i can say personally that i have out reached to all faith based organizations. they are the hardest to engage. a lot of times for certain communities when you mention you are going to bring them in. they get upset. they show up where the cameras are there and they take over or where the mayor's office is there and they can push an
8:17 am
agenda. i say that as an active member in the church and that doesn't give me leverage. >> sure. i agree basically is what cheryl said. it's difficult to get them to come to the table. unlike oakland. oco. they are about to do an action about stopping the violence. however, there are wonderful people in san francisco who are working hard to this issue. we have an adult representation, reverend. i agree with cheryl.
8:18 am
any ideas anyone here has about how we can better engage the faith community. we would be all ears on that >> the think the best way to get them on at the funerals. another deal is, we have to consider like, if you are not out there you are going to meet all the people. you are not going to touch bases with a lot of those pasteurs. they're are trying to do the right thing. keeping that connection when you go to the funeral, pull them aside. >> they have a strong presence in the juvenile presence. we are very appreciative of their support and work with the
8:19 am
juvenile probation community. >> in the sierra in the bay view. there's a minister on staff that can collaborates and tries to leverage other ministers. there's other of spiritual groups. as a form of deescalating is holding bringing in indigenous practices as well. it's a larger scale spirituality. >> next question. >> i just have a question on
8:20 am
what kwanza said. i am also spiritual. we are talking about politics and money, violence, guns. nobody is talking about prayer or god. that's all i want to say. everybody has all these positions but nobody is talking about prayer. >> we all have different ways we pray. >> i wanted to say something about church. i just recently went to a which you were called new providence. the pastor stole money from the church. because faith base side a
8:21 am
waste. >> do we have time for one more question? >> this question is specifically first young lady. once there's an act of violence. what do you think the resources are? if they are bad? how can they be improved? i think that's very important. kids need to have somebody to respond to them >> the resources in the school? >> yes. in your schools. >> well for violence, i mean there's not. we have security and stuff like that. there's no real resources in the school. the teachers don't do nothing about it. that's basically it. or they send us straight to
8:22 am
juvenile. >> one more. >> she waited a long time. so it's okay. >> my question, that i was one of the providers that went to the probation call in and i think it was an excellent program. i took a music program up there and 36 of your people there signed and i like to hope you will respond to those people that called in. >> great. >> okay. and the other question, is on the gang injunctions. i would like to know, when is the last time you have been to oak dale yourself and when is it possible for a person to get
8:23 am
off a gang injunction. people are separate from their families and that causes them to live in another turf and that in itself causes death itself. >> i go to oak dale on some type of patrol. that is one of our hot spots. as far as getting off the gang injunction. the injunction was put in place with with the city's attorney office. the opt out policy is 1 day opt out. they can opt off, you have to file with the city attorney's office. and we would reverse this.
8:24 am
but it has to be done through the city attorney's office. the question could be best directed to them. >> we would love to ask. have you this look on your face. this is last one, i am going to be in big trouble. this woman and that's it. >> i am a therapist, it was 2 weeks ago, i got a first grader transferred to cleveland. the one thing i wanted to mention here is the parents. the cbo s can do something and the police. i worked so hard with that parent and inspectors. not a single person has
8:25 am
mentioned parent. how can we make them accountable. >> i just needed to put that the word parent out there. we need to make more accountability. most of the kids are reacting. my kid, has severe ptsd. unless we can heal the wounds. it's not just on the streets of sunnydale. >> yes. the family, what makes up a family, parents children. ultimately, we have to also deal with our families who have their children who are placed with these acronyms over their
8:26 am
head that follows them all through their lives. when working with the child. not only are we working with the families and their friends and the places they go before they get home. so the ultimate thing is building that family unit. i was going to run to that. life goes on. we all have a duty not just to the child. but to the family. because the child comes from a family and most the children that we're working with. the families are broken. the homes are broken. so they lived through this years and years. the parents have lived through
8:27 am
broken families. >> i do want to say, we have to start with the kids. the kids are actually bring the parents. when the programs are working, then when you put on an event, the kid says, you have to go to this. if you don't come, i can't participate. it's a lot of the families that we're working with, the parents sometimes are at the same loss that the school and community it. i think it's empowering the young people and then they are parenting their parents. we have to deal with that
8:28 am
reality. some of these kids are on their own. and going to the parent didn't necessarily make a difference. if we can get the kids to buy in. they can be motivated their own life. >> well, me, i just started to speaking to my dad. i haven't spoke to my mom in a month. she used to abuse me. i don't have parents. >> sounds like a topic for next year summits. for now, i would like to thank
8:29 am
you. thank you. >> thank you. we're actually, this has been an action-packed conference and we're asking that our panelists remain here. we have a power point of all the action items that have been put forth this morning and this afternoon. this is our call to action. >> so one of the recommendations was to have direct community canvases to find out what programs they want. >> okay. and we have to start
